I attended Matilda the Musical with my children age 7 and 8. I became unwell (migraine, sickness etc yuck yuck!!!) I was so well looked after by Chris (manager) and his team of ushers - they kept an eye on my children so that they would not miss out, kept me topped up with water and constantly asking me how...

We had heard before hand that the theatre is very hot. It certainly was in the lobby but once in the theatre itself we found it comfortable. They had a cloakroom for coats etc which was good as we had a wet umbrella. My husband bought a bottle of water so not sure how much it was but the sweets... More

Took my daughter her with my partner at the weekend, the show was amazing but this is about the theatre. Nice little theatre with clean facilities. We had seats in H row of the dress circle which even my 11yo daughter said the view was very good. You do lose a bit of the interaction you get from being in... More

The theatre - lovely little 1930's theatre, on an acute corner. Really welcoming. Imagine a sweet little theatre in a movie, this is it. A pleasure, except of course the fact that air con was not a consideration in its design nor possible to retro fit. In early July on a warm but not really hot Saturday night it was... More

Matilda was our birthday treat of choice for our daughter last weekend. Fabulous from start to finish, third row from the front in the stalls, amazing seats, pleasant staff and superb location in Central London. This is probably the best musical we have been to see and hats off to the young stars performing, what an excellent show. Lovely quaint... More
